Tulane welcomes the Class of 2023 — more than 1,800 students — to campus this fall. More than 41,000 applications for admission were received by Tulane this year, which translates into a 13% acceptance rate, making the class the most selective in the university’s history. The number of applications also marks a 6% increase over last year. The Class of 2023 is one of the strongest academically, with a converted average SAT score of 1463. The new class also is the most diverse, with 30% of the students being students of color or international students, which is an 11% increase over last year. The 110 international students are from 29 different countries. “It’s the most global class,” said Satyajit Dattagupta, vice president of enrollment management and dean of undergraduate admission. Students also represent states from across the country with the top three states being California, New York and Louisiana.
